"Where It's At" as written by Beck Hansen, John Robert King and Michael S. Simpson....
There's a destination a little up the road
From the habitations and the towns we know
A place we saw the lights turn low
Jig-saw jazz and the get-fresh flow

Pulling out jives and jamboree handouts
Two turntables and a microphone
Bottles and cans and just clap your hands and just clap your hands

Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone
Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone
Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone
Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone

Take me home in my elevator bones!
That was a good drum break

Pick yourself up off the side of the road
With your elevator bones and your whip-flash tones
Members only, hyponotizers
Move through the room like ambulance drivers
Shine your shoes with your microphone blues
Hirsutes with your parachute flutes
Passing the dutchie from coast to coast
Let the man Gary Wilson rock the most

Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone
Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone

What about those who swing both ways: AC-DC's

Two turntables and a microphone
Two turntables and a microphone
Two turntables and a microphone
Two turntables and a microphone
Two turntables and a microphone
Two turntables and a microphone

Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone
Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone

Oh, dear me. Make Out City is a two-horse town
That's beautiful, Dad
Get my microphone

There's a destination a little up the road
From the habitations and the towns we know
A place we saw the lights turn low
Jig-saw jazz and the get-fresh flow
Pulling out jives and jamboree handouts
Two turntables and a microphone
Bottles and cans and just clap your hands and just clap your hands

Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone
Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone

I got plastic on my mind
Telephone plastic baby

    General Commenteokram, I agree.
    Two turntables and a microphone? I always wondered if that was sexual or not. Where it's at indeed.

    I love the "take me home with my elevator bones" and "shine your shoes with your microphone blues."

    What about those who swing both ways? AC-DC's?
    haha, sexellent.

    General CommentBeck is what he is. He makes music just for the sake of making it. I bet he doesn't give a shit how many albums he sells. He can do a lot of other things. You know he co-authored a cook book with Julia Child before she died?

    They didn't call him a renaissance man for nothing.

    This song kicks ass.

    General CommentDude, his newer stuff like Seachange is good, just more mellow... Beck is so awesome because of his versatality. I wish they had some Seachange on here to comment about. This song has always been one of my favourite songs, though... I love the lyics... I especially liked the video.
